The Place Beyond the Pines is the new movie from the director of Blue Valentine. Luke (Ryan Gosling) is a motorcycle performer. While passing through Schenectady, NY, he learns that a former lover, Romina (Eva Mendes), has given birth to their son Jason. Luke decides to give up life on the road to try and provide for his newfound family. His employer Robin (Ben Mendelsohn) proposes to partner in a string of bank robberies â which will place Luke on the radar of ambitious rookie cop Avery Cross (Bradley Cooper). Avery, who has to navigate a police department ruled by corrupt detective Deluca (Ray Liotta), is also struggling to balance life with his wife Jennifer (Rose Byrne) and their infant son AJ. The consequences of Avery's confrontation with Luke reverberate into the next generation, when the two sons, Jason (Dane DeHaan) and AJ (Emory Cohen), must face their fateful, shared legacy.
Perry's film lags and limps along its two-hour runtime before finally going whole hog on one of the most dizzyingly weird final acts in recent cinematic history.
Kate Erbland, MSN Movies - March 29, 2013
The movie is intimate in its telling, sweeping in its issues and stumbles only occasionally.
Betsy Sharkey, Los Angeles Times - March 29, 2013
Its ambitions - even its unrealized ones - are a great part of its power.
Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger - March 29, 2013
If, in the end, the film can't quite sustain its epic vision, it does, along the way, achieve the density and momentum of a good novel.
